With 8 candidates vying for the Gainesville At-Large 1 city commission seat, most candidates were not able to gain enough support to move forward to the run-off. Realtor Donna Lutz finished fourth, but she is happy with the campaign she ran.
She says the one thing she would like to see change moving in to the run-off is more support from the public.
Realtor Darlene Pifalo may be out of the race with a third place finish, but WUFT-FM’s Nickelle Smith says she is not done with local politics.
Dejeon Cain finished 7th tonight. He hopes the candidate who emerges as commissioner after the run-off will bring some direction to the city.
James Ingle finished 5th in the race, Richard Selwach 6th and Mark Venzke 8th.
